Mariah Carey is the undisputed Queen of Christmas, so she’s the perfect person to focus on in a special Christmas Edition of Transformation Tuesday! After all, she wrote and performed maybe the best (Christmas) song of all time. Mariah has been belting out the number ones since the early nineties and has slayed us with her incredible vocals and quirky personality ever since. Through the years she’s gone from natural and curly to curvy bombshell goddess and every sexy look in between. While Mariah’s hair may take many forms, she’s always serving up gorgeous gowns, a lot of cleavage and a big smile. And we’re sure we’ll be seeing Mariah belt out “All I Want For Christmas Is You” for the next few decades.
Jennifer Lopez thinks dating younger guys is no big deal, Mariah Carey cries and loses a shoe during a performance, Miley Cyrus covers folk icon Melanie‘s “Look What They’ve Done” and more on Last Lap.
Nick Jonas will be the opener for Iggy Azalea’s 2015 tour, Azealia Banks wants white hip hop artists to step up for racial injustice, Jennifer Lawrence’s The Hunger Games song is #12 on Billboard and more on First Dibs.
Ariana Grande released a new Christmas single, “Santa Tell Me,” today, and it’s as “kewt” as she said it would be. The festive love song doesn’t quite show off her vocal prowess as much as her performance at last night’s American Music Awards did, but the pop princess is nevertheless prepping us all for the holiday season. Though “Santa Tell Me” radiates her happy-go-lucky style, we can’t help but compare the single to the untouchable Christmas anthem “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by her idol, Mariah Carey. Is Grande coming for Carey’s long-term reign as Christmas Queen?
In a music industry full of dynamite female acts, who reigns supreme as the ultimate pop goddess? It’s a daunting question, but we are determined to find the answer. Let’s get ready to rumble, because the next round of VH1?s Pop Queen Faceoff continues! Today we’re pitting two of music’s biggest divas — Janet Jackson andMariah Carey— against each other for one glitter-soaked cat fight. Who will come out on top? You decide!

We’re just a few days into our Pop Queen Faceoff and already it’s getting ugly. Daggers, and shade, have been thrown. But as a contester in the thrown down, don’t expect Mariah Carey to be phased by the haters. Please, dahhhling. Even back in ’08, Mimi wasn’t taking the heat seriously, and as a veteran at the top of the diva game, she damn well won’t now.
OK, maybe we didn’t actually come to blows when discussing who deserves the Queen of Pop title —but it came pretty close! From Beyonce to Britney Spears, Taylor Swift to Mariah Carey, we hold our favorite diva very close to our hearts, and today’s launch of the VH1 Pop Queen Faceoff brought all of these feelings bubbling up to the surface. The debate may have gotten a little heated at times, but a little passion is a good thing, right? Read more…
There seems to be no doubt that Michael Jackson is the King of Pop. This indisputable fact has seeped into popular consciousness to the point where there can be no serious pretenders to the throne. But there are a number of super-talented superstars who’ve laid claim to the Queen of Pop title. To some, Madonna may seem like the obvious choice, but what about current Queen Beyonce? And let’s not forget the unrivaled sales records of divas like Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. From iconic images of Britney Spears dancing in a high school hallway to Lady Gaga‘s way-out styles, each generation has their own favorite pop duchess. But there has never been a definitive crowning of a Queen— until now. Welcome to VH1’s Pop Queen Faceoff, a multi-week voting bracket that aims to settle the debate once and for all.
